Is there any space of your home that’s desperately in need of an upgrade? Or are you missing that perfect accent piece to complement your room’s décor? Whether you want to add a finishing touch or refresh your space, we have great news for you!
In addition to our DKOR Crushes page where we share some of our top exclusive trade products, we are now starting a new blog post series: Favorite Designer Picks!
What is this new favorite designer picks series about?
As interior designers we’re constantly combing through hundreds of websites looking for the perfect piece, in the perfect finish or size and of course the perfect price and lead-time. It’s only natural that during these long searches that we discover a variety of absolutely gorgeous pieces that even though sometimes don’t make it to our final furniture and accessories selection, we love them so much that we can’t stop thinking about them.
This is how Favorite Designer Picks started! There’s no better way to share the love than sharing our insight to new and trending decor finds.
This month we asked our lead interior designer, Marianna, for her current top ten favorite pieces. Read on to see her selections and discover beautiful budget-friendly options to give your space a new look. Happy shopping!
Who says designers only shop at expensive Italian furniture stores? Have you been to Target lately? I’m in love with Target furniture and home accessories from their Threshold collection. Every entry foyer needs a statement piece and this console is the perfect size for most spaces and the angled bar at the bottom brings a whimsical look to your space.
I’m obsessed with the beautiful combination of black and green for any covered outdoor space. I love the pattern details on the high back and low arms. This seat also has a great width for those of us that like to curl up in our chairs and enjoy a good read or sharing time with our loved ones.
PILLOW CRUSH! I love this simple yet attractive throw pillow, the mix of pattern and lines make it a playful addition wherever you want to place it. By the way, who doesn’t love Pom Poms? Pair it with the Black Rattan chair shown above for a comfy and stylish look.
Copper is the new Chrome! I believe Black and Copper make a timeless look when it’s paired together. This side table is a great size and the marble top makes it durable and easy to clean. I also love how its curved edges around the top and legs is a softer take on its edgy black finish.
Speaking of COPPER! I love the combination of line and circle in this fixture, I believe in simplicity and elegance and this light fixture has it all. Place 3-4 pendants all lined up to create a “linear” light fixture over a dining table for an edgy take on dining room lighting.
I love interactive light fixtures! This asymmetrical table lamp is perfect for a nightstand since you can adjust the cone of light for those who read in bed! Its perfect for any space and available in black too.
The Chilewich Mixed Weave Floor Mat is a perfect example of functional design. This “area rug” has monochromatic patterns within each piece that add interest to a space . Its available in lots of sizes and its very durable material makes it a painless investment.
Small decorative boxes are a “must have” on any coffee table. They’re perfect for storing your remote controls or any items you don’t want to loose. I love to bring cow hide prints in small objects and these bold pieces are perfect for any Family room or niche.
It irresistible how comfortable this arm chair looks. I love the wide and plushy cushions and the stitching detail on the back is elegant and timeless. Place these chairs in a spot where you can appreciate the beautiful back and pair them up with a solid side table for a perfect reading niche.
Another must at the moment of staging at home are trays. This tray has it all! The size is perfect to stack books or magazines with a decorative paper weight over it. It’s accent shagreen material is the perfect match over a Walnut furniture piece and the touch of polished gold handles add elegance. Inside tip: place the tray with the handle in front to add more layers to your setting.
